I bought Gamemaker pro in the recent humble bundle as I'd love to make some games (for myself) based on the old classics from the late 70's to the early 1980's. Anyway the software is fine but with me being old (53), never done programming and being rather dumb I'm finding the software very hard to use. The drag and drop is okay but too limiting and the GML code is just beyond me.
Construct 2 was recommended to me but I'd like more info before I plonk down such a large amount of money (to me anyway!) for software I might not be able to use.
How easy is it to learn construct 2?
Is it good for an oldie who totally failed all his maths classes way back when?
Any unbiased feedback would be helpful, thank you.
(I'm looking really to create games such as:- Jetpac, Sabre Wulf, Mazogs, Space Invaders, Robotron, Berzerk, Hero, Moon Cresta, Scramble and possibly much later on, 2d role playing games like Ultima IV and rogue clones)
